Meet the Designer-Maker

Hi, I'm Christine, the designer-maker behind Original Kiln-fired Enamelled Jewellery. As a child I loved making things, even before I understood the idea of crafts. My first experience of enamelling was as a teenager and once I became fairly proficient I took my work to school fairs, etc, and also sold it to friends and family. Following school, I attended art college where I learnt traditional silversmithing techniques, but also had the freedom to be very creative using more unusual media. For some time I produced jewellery in these materials, however I was drawn back to my first love - enamelling. I have since expanded the range of my work to include items in mixed media, such as house numbers and other decorative plaques to apply to boxes, vases and the like.
